Here’s another great way to use your OPI Sheer Tints…
Start with a white or light neutral base color. Then do some nail stamping over top. When that’s dry, light sweep some OPI Sheer Tints over top of your stamps to get this awesome effect! One of the cool things about Sheer Tints is that they are so translucent you really don’t need to be neat or accurate when you apply them. Yet the finished product makes people go “hmmmm how did you do that?”
I recently picked up some more Orly colors from their old Birds of a Feather Collection. I loved this collection from 2011… but more importantly, I felt the need to hoard a few more of these old Orly bottles. Have you seen the design of their new bottles? They look so weird and different to me that I want to get my hands on as many of the oldies as possible! For posterity or something!
One of my faves from the Birds of a Feather collection is the blue base I’m wearing here called Sweet Peacock. Isn’t it gorgeous? It’s the most electric aqua blue foil that I’ve ever seen! I’m so glad I added it to my stash!
It seemed fitting to pair this polish with a peacock design. I did 2 coats of Sweet Peacock as my base color. Then I applied some chevron nail guide stickers and painted my tips with another Birds of a Feather Orly called Lucky Duck. The rest of the gold, black, blue and purple accents were done with a dotting tool. It was actually pretty simple! Here’s the colors I used:
blue ♥ Sweet Peacock by Orly
green ♥ Lucky Duck by Orly
gold ♥ Because You’re Worth It by L’Oreal
purple ♥ Eggplant Frost by wet n wild
black ♥ Black Lace Cream by NYC
These peacock nails are fun to wear! I just love colors inspired by nature! Do you own any of these polishes from the Birds of a Feather collection?
